Dalton Discusses Options for Cable Contract Negotiations

By Sabrina DammsiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass. — The Cable Advisory Commission held its first meeting since 2019 on Monday night. 
The commission was re-established to negotiate a new contract with Charter Communications. 
There are four voting members on the commission, three of whom are also on the Dalton Community Cable Association's board. 
The commission is weighing its options for obtaining legal counsel, the needs to be negotiated, and need for volunteers. 
The last time the town had a contract was in 1997 with Time Warner Cable, which was purchased by Spectrum in 2016. 
The commission plans to negotiate for a share of gross revenue, capital funds, funding for fiber optic cables, which will enhance its connections, and updated equipment needed to handle this upgrade. 
Commissioner Richard White said, to his knowledge, by law the town should have three stations but it currently only has one.
